Vinyl leather repair

Anyone used a vinyl leather repair kit?

My car drivers door handle has two jagged tears that I'd like to try and fix - is it a case of cutting a shape in the armrest, cleaning it up and then gluing a similar colour patch over the hole that I just cut out?

Well my first point of call would be see if I could get one from the scrap yard or off eBay.
I do leather repairs, just done MX5.
depending on the severity of the tears, it can be repaired and redyed,31620517-rbewd.jpg
you can get a kit from Furniture clinic.
By gluing a patch over it, it will make it worse

What car is it?. Most likely the cheapest option will be a used handle of eBay.
